“Danielle is an excellent instructor encouraging individuality in the practice of healing. Her technique of applying each individual’s intuitive sense along with traditional learned practices and “hands on ” experience helps one to understand, learn, and use positive energy forces, and apply them to healing.”– Susan M., Philadelphia

Reiki is a gentle Japanese energy (ki) practice that is simple to learn and deepens over a lifetime. We work with the subtle force of ki with our every action and breath. The Usui system helps us to enhance this connection simply and easily. Reiki can be learned by anyone with an open heart and mind.

My classes are offered in a variety of formats to suit everyone’s learning styles and schedules. Level one and two classes are most popular in the “weekend workshop” format, and multi-week and weekday classes are always enrolling. Mastership is an extended journey which allows you the opportunity to deeply explore Reiki and grow to be a confident, skilled practitioner and/or teacher.

Classes are small to compliment the intimate nature of personal healing. I host regular Reiki shares for ongoing practice and community building at a student’s own pace and convenience. Since I have so many grads teaching in the region, the community exists well beyond my practice-you will be welcome at many shares, events and classes throughout the area. Should you feel called to make Reiki a full or part time profession, you will be greeted and encouraged by myself, my grads and my growing family of “grand” and “great-grand” students! You’ll never be alone as you walk your professional path. I also host free networking events to allow our community to meet practitioners of other modalities in the area for professional development and personal growth.

The best way to learn about Reiki is to experience it. I lead regular, affordable events to give you a chance to do just that.

Everyone is welcome at our shares, even if you have never studied Reiki! Enjoy good company, get support, ask questions about the practice and trade healing energy. Suggested contribution just $5-10, RSVP required.

In this level, you will learn and practice several ways to treat yourself while learning the basics of energy work and the principles of sharing Reiki with others. After completing Reiki Level One, you can continue your studies as far as you like…even becoming an instructor yourself if you choose!

This is the first step along your Reiki journey! We will experience the magic and healing power of Reiki energy first hand. This exciting time of self discovery will be with you forever. Come alone or enroll with a friend or loved one.  No experience or prior skill is needed.

  • All Level 1 Attunements

When your practice guides you to share the healing gifts of Reiki, it is time for Mastership. You have what it takes to bring Reiki to your community, and these classes will help you get there. Whether you wish to serve your community through sessions or teaching, I have a supportive, comprehensive and relevant program to help you meet your calling.

My Reiki Mastership classes can help you bring Reiki to others with confidence, sensitivity and professionalism.

By popular request, I have split my Reiki Mastership into two levels. Reiki Level 3 is for those who wish to complete their Reiki training and may want to practice professionally. Advanced healing techniques, client rapport and business topics are all covered at lenth in four classes that take place over two months. Reiki Level 4 guides you through all aspects of teaching Reiki to others, including preparation of teaching materials and best practices foreffectively educating students. Both courses are open to transfer students. Reiki level two is a prerequisite for level three. If you are already a Reiki Master, my level four course can help prepare you to bring the practice of Reiki to others. Reiki 4 is three classes over three months.

About the Instructor, Danielle Stimpson

My personal practice of Reiki has spanned eleven years and I have been in professional practice for eight. In that time, I have had the opportunity to study multiple lineages of Reiki under various teachers and work with hundreds of clients and students with a diverse range of needs. My background as a business consultant, years as a small business owner and tenure as Host/Producer of Healing Arts Radio adds practical, applicable elements to each mastership I lead.

In addition to Usui Reiki, I am a Master Instructor of Integrated Energy Therapy, an Angelic healing practice that focuses oh healing the emotional pain that holds us back in life. In 2016 I unveiled The Stimpson Methods of Shamanic Reiki. Whether or not you Identify as “intuitive”, your practice will be supported all along the way. All subjects included in my class are relevant, and all of the assignments offer practical experience that students find helpful.
